Just recently, I posted a project idea I had in mine on my personal blog which you could find here. And, I thought I'd share a little more tips and ideas for my Project Life 2013 Plan.
Included in this post are:
- Materials and tools to get you started
- Who can do Project Life?
- How often do you need to work on your Project Life?
So, without further ado, let's get going...
Okay... So, when I first found out about Project Life, I found that items and materials are easily obtained through Becky Higgins' website. This is why it really makes it appealing to non-crafters as they do not really need any crafting abilities to be able to build their Project Life. Available on Becky Higgins' website/shop are the basic materials such as binders and pocket pages. But, I think the most interesting items she has are core kits which include journaling cards which you could simply slip into the pocket pages and you are good to go. They are already readily decorated, so really, no need to embellish if you don't want to.
But, for one like myself who find the items way out of my budget or simply unavailable in my country/area, I thought that I could actually make one with items you find at office/school supplies. Here are the main items you need to get started:
- Book Binder
- Pocket Page refills
- Photos, Memorabilia
- Patterned Cardstock/Paper
Pretty basic, right? I actually haven't checked the nearest office supplies store yet for the pocket page refills, but I am sure I found some before. Haha. But, rest assured, I will check on that and update this post/blog. If there aren't available, I sure will find ways to improvise. ;)
Who can do Project Life?
Trust me when I say that ANYONE can do it! All you have to do is compile pictures or tokens that make a certain week or month memorable. It could be anything or everything, it all is up to you. :) You can make it as fancy as you want, as simple as you want. Does not matter. What matters is that you get to capture every memorable moment as possible.
How often do you need to work on your Project Life?
Well, depending on the theme you choose, then that will determine how often you should do Project Life. If you think you don't have much time to work on it, do a monthly themed project life, capturing the most memorable moment each month. If you are up to the challenge of capturing unforgettable moments weekly, then a weekly themed project would be perfect. If you are more into family gatherings, then maybe a family themed project works best. Just put it this way: do your project life when you feel the need to. It's all depending on the time you have. No pressure at all...
And, as a bonus, I am thinking of even doing and making freebies for the non-crafty blogger friends who wants to join in the fun. Just like what you see on the Project Life core kits, I will try to come up with my own version of ready to use journaling cards. All you have to do is print and cut to size! How's that sound?
